New Annie Leibovitz Disney Dream Portrait – Jessica Chastain as Merida from Pixar’s Brave

Photograph Annie Leibovitz’s collaboration with Disney Parks for the wonderful Disney Dream Portrait series continues. This time with the first every character from a Pixar film. Jessica Chastain portrays Princess Merida from “Brave” in this portrait entitled “Where your destiny awaits.” Chastain previously appeared in “The Help” a Dreamworks film distributed by Walt Disney Studios and for which she received multiple award nominations.

I’m not sure they captured Merida’s horse correctly, but I do love the choice of subject for this photo. What do you think? How did they do capturing the spirit of Merida?

Disney Fan Takes on Leibovitz’s Dream Portraits With His Own Series


Becky Meza poses as the villainess Ursula from “The Little Mermaid.”

Meet Duy Truong, he’s a photographer in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with a passion for Disney. Inspired by Annie Leibovitz’s Dream Portrait series she did for Disney, he decided he could do his own tribute version after thinking the series had ceased after her portrait with Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.

So he assembled his crew of Disney obsessed friends, some props and costumes, and did some location scouting. The result is absolutely magical. Even though Leibovitz has returned with new Dream Portraits for Disney Parks, I’m delighted to see how well Duy captured the essence of the series.

I’m very pleased to be presenting the world premier of the most recent photos from Duy. Here are two pieces featuring local actress Anneliese Banks as Alice. I love the touch of the hidden mickey in the second one. (click on each image to view it in larger size.)

Here’s one of my favorites “When You Never Forget”, with Raphael “Raffi” Mikelstein portraying Christopher Robin.
